Eye is OK

Eye is OK after all
Well, not much of a post, really, except to say that I went to bed last night seeing double out of my right eye, and hoping things would get back to normal soon, by Friday as the doctor noted. If things didn't feel like they were improving by Friday, I was to go to the Eye Institute at the Hospital...

But I woke up this morning, and my eyesight is 90% back to normal. I still have some doubling right in front of me, but it it only on the scale of a very slight distortion. From what I know of eyes, this small distortion is relatively easy to fix... but I also know that the outer layer has the capability to fix itself... and I think I'm in that category.

When I first looked at my eye after the accident, quite literally you could see a sear-mark diagonally across my iris. Yes, my eyeball looked like a nicely BBQ'd steak. Now it appears to have "dissolved" and the tissue is healing.

So once again, wear your safety equipment :)
